Re: Oh boy another recall...

It's actually nice to see. In the "old" days we would have not had a recall.

Re: Oh boy another recall...

They still don't have the parts for the last recall. Hopefully this one doesn't apply to me. No year noted in notice posted.

Re: Oh boy another recall...

The Basics: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling 14,768 examples of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango, both from the 2015 and 2016 model years, and built between December 9, 2015, and January 14, 2016.

The Problem: The left front brake caliper on some vehicles may have been made from the wrong type of iron, and could be prone to crack. A cracked brake caliper may not function properly.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported. The problem was discovered by the automaker during testing.

The fix: Dealers will need to check the casting date of the component in question, and if necessary, replace the brake caliper. The schedule for carrying out the recall service has yet to be outlined.

Re: Oh boy another recall...

Does anyone know this date code?? I'll be rotating tires soon and could easily check this code. Might save me a trip to the dealer and a day without my GC. My 15 has not yet visited the dealership and was hoping to keep it that way. Almost one year,Wishful thinking I know.
